How to change the color of an object's own shadows?? (picture included)

How is it possible to change an object’s shadow in Unreal (the shadow core and form shadow in the picture)? Are there any tutorials on this?

Thanks in advance.

Edit: I would like to make the shadow on objects to be blue or peach color.

You need some colored ambient light in your scene. Try adding a skylight?

I think you’re misunderstanding. Not the color of shadows an object casts on another, but an object’s own shadows (I’m not sure what the term is for this in Unreal. Maybe it’s diffuse?).

I suggest you read the basics on how materials work in UE 4 and go from there. https://docs.unrealengine.com/en-us/Engine/Rendering/Materials

Okay, I looked at the articles and found something called “subsurface scattering” and it’s pretty close to the look I was going for.

Thanks a lot.
